Hello!
I am having a problem:

I'm running Windows xp and F-secure. Several times a day my computer locks up and everything takes ages to run, even changing windows can take serval mins. A warning exclamation mark appears in my F-secure icon. When I go into task manager I see that a the file fssm32.exe is taking up 99% of my CPU and this seems to be what is blocking everything else. The only sollution is to turn off the computer and start again, however after 30mins or so the same things happens....very frustrating. I also have a subscription to F-secure so I know my virus database is upto date.

I've also run an on line virus check (bitdefender).

Here is the subsequent hijack this log file, is there anything odd?
